What is a PPM file?

A PPM file is a 24-bit color image formatted using a text format. It stores each pixel with a number from 0 to 65536, which specifies the color of the pixel. PPM files also store the image height and width, whitespace data, and the maximum color value.

More Information

The Portable Pixmap format uses an uncompressed and inefficient format compared to other bitmap image formats. Therefore, it is seldom used for storing large images.
